I’m Just A Girl Standing In Front Of Karamo Brown Asking Him To Give Her A Pep Talk

Instagram / Karamo Brown


My name is Molly Burford and I seriously need a pep talk. Specifically one from Queer Eye’s culture expert Karamo Brown. So this is my official application! Please make me feel better about myself and the direction my life is headed, Karamo!!!! I don’t have any money to offer you at this time, but I will pay you in infinite gratitude and can make really good scrambled eggs. (Seriously, they’re fluffy as FUCK.)

Anyway, I’ve seen what you’ve done for those who have appeared on Queer Eye. I think you offer stellar advice. I know you spent years as a clinical social worker and I can’t even imagine how many people you helped before the show.

You see the best in people, you see potential, and that’s a rare gift to have since everyone pretty much hates each other all the time. You are so very kind and intelligent and I think you could really help me get my shit together. Which, currently, is very much not together!!!!

You are literally the hashtag #MondayMotivation personified, but you are not annoying or disingenuous. You’re real AF. And I love it.

From seeing the way you spoke to Tom and cheered him on and coached him in episode one to helping Leo vibe with the other dads to helping Remy become a Remington, I know you are literally an American treasure. Your help would be very much appreciated in the form of a five-10 minute pep talk.


I Need A Pep Talk, Please!


If Jonathan wants to fix my hair, if Tan wants to style me, if Antoni wants to teach me to cook something other than scrambled eggs, and if Bobby wants to help me with my room because I literally don’t have a bedframe, I would not be opposed!

Trace the scars life has left you. It will remind you that at one point, you fought for something. You believed.

“You are the only person who gets to decide if you are happy or not—do not put your happiness into the hands of other people. Do not make it contingent on their acceptance of you or their feelings for you. At the end of the day, it doesn’t matter if someone dislikes you or if someone doesn’t want to be with you. All that matters is that you are happy with the person you are becoming. All that matters is that you like yourself, that you are proud of what you are putting out into the world. You are in charge of your joy, of your worth. You get to be your own validation. Please don’t ever forget that.” — Bianca Sparacino
